Our approach to web development is process driven with particular emphasis placed on the discovery and planning phases. Our project managers work with client stakeholders to articulate project goals and requirements. We also work with internal developers to create software models that accurately represent the client's business model. Most large projects follow the general structure outlined below, although we often tailor each phase to a projects specific needs and challenges.
This research guides the development of user personas and a communications brief.
Final budgets are determined during this phase and requirements are defined based on research done during discovery.
The wireframes are then refined into a final esthetic approach and a set of finished design comps.
Templates are then implemented in the CMS (TYPO3) and content is migrated to the new site structure.
The review process ensures that the site conforms to all documented requirements.
We work closely with client IT staff to ensure zero-downtime during launch and to be careful that no external IT assets are negatively affected.
